The brief uncertainty about Mike Onwenu’s collegiate future is over. He will sign with Michigan Wednesday.

In a move that wasn’t at all unexpected Detroit Cass Tech offensive lineman Michael Onwenu reaffirmed a commitment that was never truly in doubt.

“I did take a visit down (to Michigan State) just to take a visit,” Onwenu said in a Tuesday night radio interview.  “I’m only going to get this opportunity once, so I did take the visit to observe and look around the campus.”


“For the next four to five years I am going to continue in college and get my Master’s degree.  I will be taking my talents to the University of Michigan.”

While he clearly be assigned duties on the interior of Michigan’s offensive line, he revealed that that may not be the only role he plays for the Maize & Blue.

“I’ll also have the opportunity to play defensive tackle,” he said.
